for me... everytime i will bring along a 4l Mobile1 to service centre, and they will return me the bottle with a little bit of engine oil inside it....
8 litre of engine? then it will cost a bomb if using fully synthetic (~RM300)
If I would like to change to 195/55R15.. .do i have to go adjust my sppedometer?? and where should i go?
anybody change their suspension.absorber b4? any brand to go?

the 55 series tyres offers a better ride copared to the 50series ones..
for my 1.6 i have been using the SHeLL Semi-Synt..from 1995 till 2000...engine sounds noisy...so changed to Castrol Magnatec, very satisfied coz engine sounds a lot smoother....and i change the oil and filter only every 10,000kms.....no prob so far...
gearOil ....i would say use only Proton ATF...nothing else....others might melt the wiring which is soaked in the fluiD.

and to bulldog, the sensatrac absorbers is not bad..though a bit soft and what i did to counter this is to fit those lower arm bar for the rear suspension to hold the chasis a bit tighter though i can say those "inside the engine" front strut bar doesnt make a difference on my car..so removed it...
i guess what adam2307, is saying is the leftover ATF in the torque converter, not ENGINE oil...hehe...

about the clone filter....aiyo...how ar??? coz i m planning to change my filter soon. last nite meet a old friend, he told me that K&N got a perfomance filter. It give better responce and fule consumption. we no need to modify the air filter box coz the filter is just same size as the original one. :)
Any one any idea??
my friend aslo advised me to use castrol magnetec (semi), he said u can feel the engine smoother in the morning, when the car is just started and u can press the pedal and rush to work. ;)
Any one any idea??
